Montpellier, France ( - Frenchman Adrian Mannarino was among Tuesday's first-round winners at the Open Sud de France tennis event.

Mannarino handled lucky loser and fellow Frenchman Vincent Millot 6-4, 6-4 on the indoor hardcourts at Arena Montpellier.

The left-handed Mannarino is rewarded with a second-round match against third- seeded Polish slugger Jerzy Janowicz.

Also on Day 2, Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin dismissed Turkish qualifier Marsel Ilhan 6-4, 7-5 and an all-French affair saw qualifier Marc Gicquel take out lefty Michael Llodra 6-4, 7-6 (7-4).
